MJ's Mom

Fears Debbie Rowe Will

Blow Lid Off MJ Paternity

Lawyers for Katherine Jackson have been nosing around ... trying to find out what Debbie Rowe might say under oath about the paternity of the two kids she bore while married to Michael Jackson.

Sources connected to Katherine tell TMZ ... her lawyers have been making a number of inquiries on the eve of the family's wrongful death trial against AEG Live.

We're told lawyers worry Debbie will testify Michael is NOT the biological father of Prince and Paris.  TMZ broke the story back in 2009 ... Michael indeed is not the biological father.

Debbie is on the witness list for both Katherine and AEG Live.  AEG has taken Debbie's deposition but -- shockingly -- we've learned AEG never asked Debbie a single question about paternity as it relates to MJ.

As for why Katherine's lawyers are so interested in Debbie's testimony ... she's the one who knows the most about MJ and the paternity, and they're worried AEG may try to prove the kids don't have any legal ties to Michael, which could torpedo their damage claim.

Katherine's lawyers have already filed legal docs asking the judge to exclude any evidence of paternity.  The judge has yet to rule on the motion.

In the end, none of this may amount to anything because under California law ... when a woman gives birth while living with her husband, the husband is conclusively presumed to be the father, unless he's sterile or impotent.

Seems Debbie did everything Michael asked of her. She allowed herself to bear two children for Michael. She gave up her rights as a mother. Now that Michael is gone she has begun a relationship with Paris. I think the Jackson family is a little jealous of her relationship with her children. Stop with the lawsuits Jackson family. Live within your means and you will all have enough money to be comfortable.

Its obvious now they are not his kids since if they where they would NOT CARE about this at all. As a matter of fact it would make their case stronger if AEG attacked the kids in court then found out to be wrong. AEG would have to do major damage control.

But all of that is meaningless because katherine by doing this is telling the world they are not his biological kids and don't want it in writing.

Wow the Jackson clan is using the kids to gain more money before they turn around and deny that Michael is the biological parent and cut them out of any estate. Nice.

AEG has every reason to try to drag MJ's "appearent drama issues" because,they are loosing ground and Katherine Jackson,the children and MJ as a legacy,shall probably end up adquiring AEG.Why project stupidity,and not mention the people who are partners with AEG,as Kingdom Holdings...for one,JW Marriott,etc. Colony Capital,and..Sony.ring a bell>

I feel so sorry for Michael Jackson's children (he raised them they say they loved him so they are HIS children) . I hope they aren't reading these comments....

Of course she's going to blow the lid about the paternity and many other things! She hates the Jackson Family to death! She's been playing dead because she didn't want to look like the witch in the eyes of the kids. The kids will soon be 18 and they represent her meal ticket. I only hope when she opens her mouth to do all the damage she can, she will also talk about who is the mother of those kids, because she is not the mother of any of those kids. I really don't understand what the fuzz is about when a simple DNA test can shed so much light! A DNA test on Deborah Rowe, that is.

And why so much attention on these three kids, like they are the only Michael Jackson children? What about Omer, Michael's first son? He is the spitting image of Michael Jackson, and he sings and dance just like Michael.

I thought I heard a story about TMZ hiring a new managing editor. Why is the "writing" getting worse, and worse, and worse?

And TMZ, again, put an updated photo of Deborah Rowe without the photoshop. She doesn't look like that. After years of living in the Mohave Dessert and taking care of horses, she looks like Gus in his old age.

The kids are all the way white, they have no black in them and with mix kids you will never get all the way straight hair, you can have that pale look but never that all white straight hair.

None of those kids look even remotely half black. Paris has blue eyes and straight hair, a narrow nose. There would have to be some black resemblance there someplace. I see none with any of the kids. Just remember how Michael looked pre-plastic surgery. Very dark, a wide nose and kinky hair. Something is very wrong here.

Everybody knows Michael Jackson is not the children's biological father. He didn't think he was good-looking (hence all the plastic surgeries) but he wanted to have children. I know kids can look more like one side than the other, but these kids don't appear to have ANY of Michael's family traits. Whatever, that's all genetics. He raised the kids. He's the father.
